Pavigym to launch new gym flooring with innovative acoustic solution

Pavigym to launch new gym flooring with innovative acoustic solution
April 11, 2023

Leading specialist flooring manufacturer Pavigym will this week be using Germany’s FIBO 2023 event to launch BigJag - a new approach to surfacing that offers an innovative acoustic solution for the health and fitness industry.

With its technology integrated into a single tile rather than multiple layers, BigJag isolates vibrations and impact noise before transmission through a building structure, protecting the subfloor and avoiding costly repairs.

For operators, BigJag offers unrivalled acoustic properties with the fit for purpose flooring providing a safer environment for exercisers.

Explaining that the combination of dense materials and their integration in a single tile as the hallmarks of BigJag, Pavigym Innovation Manager, Alejandro Pérez Candela advises “there are many acoustic solutions on the market, but with BigJag you are not only ensuring the best acoustic insulation, you can also significantly reduce installation costs associated with traditional multi layers alternatives.

“With this all-in-one single tile solution you benefit from best in class Pavigym aesthetics with the highest possible acoustic performance."

With free weight strength training an increasingly popular fitness trend that demands effective acoustic solutions in fitness facilities around the world, Pavigym sees BigJag as a game changing solution - as leading health & fitness operators are set to find out.

STC, one of Sweden's largest gym chains with more than 190 centres, is among many groups to have placed advance orders for BigJag, with STF founder Katarina Anderson stating “we have been working with Pavigym for many years and their products always perform really well in our experience. That's why we decided to go with BigJag to solve the acoustic problems in our fitness centres.”

Acoustics experts have also been given the opportunity to test the products and have already given their first reviews of BigJag.

Manuel Taborga, who has more than 20 years of experience in the acoustic industry, added "after several acoustic tests, BigJag has proven to have optimal performance. Moreover, the fact that it is integrated into a single tile makes it very easy to install. The unique properties of the materials make it the best acoustic performance product available in the market.”

Pavigym will be presenting BigJag for the first time on 13th April during the international fitness fair FIBO - Cologne (Hall 8 Stand C36).

The company has also set up a dedicated landing page for visitors to register for a place for the launch presentation.
